Walker Lukens: “Right Place, Wrong Time” (Dr. John cover)

Posted by on Sep 22, 2016

“Right Place, Wrong Time” (produced by New Orleans R&B heavyweight Allen Toussaint) is a paragon of both Dr. John’s own swamp rock flavor and the New Orleans R&B genre as a whole. On the new blues-rock inspired benefit compilation All ATX: Low Down Violet Crown, Austin’s Walker Lukens scrubs off the grit and waxes it into a slick dance tune, mucking out the swamp and injecting his own polished sound without losing the funk of Dr. John’s original or its special cajun seasoning.

“Right Place Wrong Time” appears on the latest All ATX altruism album All ATX: Low Down Violet Crown, out 9/30 exclusively at Waterloo Records. Proceeds benefit HAAMBlack Fret, Austin Music Foundation, and SIMS Foundation. Tune into KUTX all week for your chance to win tickets to the sold-out release show at ACL Live.
